Aimmah Game (Detailed)
Aim/objective: To learn some important facts about each of our twelve Imams.
How to use: Print, cut and laminate the cards.
How to play:
- Match the fact cards to the corresponding picture cards: Show and read each fact card to the child and show the corresponding pictures. You may want to repeat the process for the child to remember the fact and the picture associated with it. Allow them to match the fact and picture cards using a full printout of the cards. Now show a fact card to the child, and put it on the table/mat. Ask the child to find the corresponding picture card and put it next to the fact card. Repeat with all the remaining cards.
- Memory game (of one Imam): Shuffle all the cards, turn them upside down and spread them out. Each player turns two at a time, then turns it back round, trying to remember the location. When they find a matching pair (of the description and the corresponding picture) they get to keep it! And so on…
- Memory game (of all Imams): Choose two cards related to each Imam, shuffle them and turn them upside down and spread them out. Each player turns two at a time, then turns it back round, trying to remember the location. When they find a matching pair they get to keep it! And so on…
- Go Fish (three or more players): Choose four cards related to each Imam. Shuffle them and hand them out equally to the players. The aim of the game is to get 4 cards of the same Imam in your hand. Detailed instructions on how to play are here.
